Java is still pretty clunky on a lot of hardware.  I would much rather
concentrate on improving access to configuration parameters and publish
what would amount to a configuration API.  We would have 3 different Java
interfaces, 2 tcl's and a 127 Perl interfaces within weeks.  This may not
sound good, but I think it is.  This doesn't stop us from doing an
interface as well, but I don't think we should waste a lot of cycles
arguing GUI aesthetics or even about the implementation language.  We will
never agree on that anyway.

I still like the idea of using LDAP.  Defining virtual hosts via LDAP
seems like a perfect fit.
